The Mandela Rhodes Scholarship is much more than financial support for your studies.
Our unique leadership development programme will empower you to become a leader with the competence and courage to solve some of Africa’s most difficult challenges. You will learn what it takes to heal divides and bring opposites together like Nelson Mandela did, in order to create a better society for all. You will begin a life-changing leadership journey, and find a community of people who share your passion for the positive transformation of Africa.
